Pimping up Delfly

The famous Delft-made flapping wing drone, Delfly, can now use stereo vision to avoid objects. Dr Sjoerd Tijmons of the Delft micro aerial vehicle lab taught the little dragonfly lookalike to recognise objects and see depth just like humans do.

Delfly can now circle around the laboratory avoiding objects and fly autonomously as long as the batteries last. (Photo: MAV Lab)
